TBWA announced that Nancy Reyes is being elevated to Chief Executive Officer of TBWAChiatDay New York.

With this promotion, Reyes expands her role and takes over full leadership of the agency from Rob Schwartz, who has been CEO since 2015. It's the latest step in a steady rise since Reyes joined the agency in April 2016 as Managing Director, becoming President in July 2018. She will report to Troy Ruhanen, CEO, TBWAWorldwide.

Working in partnership with Schwartz and the agency's executive leadership team, Reyes has led the agency through a resurgent period, growing more than 180% in five years. She has been instrumental in generating new business that leads to enduring client partnerships, such as with Hilton, TD Bank, Facebook and PepsiCo, and in elevating the agency's creative product. TBWAChiatDay New York was the TBWA collective's top performing agency at the 2019 Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity and the #5 individual office in the world at the last Lions festival. Reyes was named a "Woman to Watch" by Advertising Age in 2019.

Amid the pressures of 2020, TBWAChiatDay New York grew, winning new assignments from PepsiCo (bubly, RISE and lays), Facebook Oculus and Abbott, and adding more than 60 employees, as the agency helped its clients navigate an unprecedented year and prepare for recovery.
